After 10 years in business, Black Creek Bistro has served its last meal. The Olde Towne East restaurant closed its doors after dinner service last night, and will not re-open.

Black Creek was opened at 51 Parsons Avenue by Kent Peters in 2007 and quickly became a popular destination for a neighborhood lacking in traditional dining options. Peters announced plans in 2008 to purchase the nearby Engine House #12 historic fire station building at 734 Oak Street, which would be renovated into an expanded home for Black Creek to relocate into. The 6,200 square foot building previously served as the Columbus Music Hall entertainment venue from 1988 to 2008.

While Peters did go on to purchase the building in 2013 for $400,000 (according to the Franklin County Auditor), the plans to move Black Creek Bistro into the building never came to fruition.

“The Firehouse is sold, Black Creek is closed as of today, and is up for a quick sale for $70,000,” Peters told Columbus Underground via email.
